I am an enthusiastic, positive, and patient graduate of Skidmore College (BA, music; minor, international affairs). My teaching experience includes directing several collegiate choirs and orchestral ensembles, singlehandedly coordinating the music program at Camp Onaway (as well as teaching in a variety of other areas, including but not limited to the knitting program and counselor-in-training program), teaching ESL courses and conversation clubs in Amman, Jordan, and teaching one-on-one lessons in piano and voice.
I believe in a mix of hands-on, practice-based learning, as well as a solid understanding of theory. There are many ways to learn, and I constantly adapt my methods to suit the learning style of each individual. I love to teach, I love to help, and I love witnessing the "aha" moment when, suddenly, everything clicks! I look forward to assisting in as many subjects as you need.
